Leucomagus

Hob Uid: 227984
Location :
Hampshire
Test Valley
Andover
Grid Ref : SU3710047400
Summary : The site of a possible Roman small town at East Anton. The area was excavated prior to building development in 1970-2. The evidence suggested a fairly extensive settlement, occupied variously from 1st to 4th Centuries.
More information : SU 371 474. The area at, and to the NW of, the Roman cross-roads (RR4b and RR43) was excavated ahead of building development in 1970-72. Considerable Romano-British finds were made (See Map diagram).

The evidence suggests a fairly extensive settlement (succeeding a Belgic farmstead - SU 34 NE 38) occupied with fluctuating fortune from 1st-4th centuries (and erasing the actual cross-road early in its existence). Its siting accords very closely with that of the Ravenna Cosmography's "Leucomago" as deduced by Richmond and Crawford.

Name 'LEVCOMAGVS'? accepted for 4th. edition R.B.Map. (1-4)
